The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 6)

Recorded live at the City Hall in Sheffield, England on June 1, 1977.? This is a historic performance for Rush.? This is their first concert outside the US and Canada.? And the band seems really fresh for the occasion.? But that isn't the only first the crowd is treated to this night.? Rush debut's Xanadu in a pre-release form.? This tour is a warm up for the recording of the "Farewell to Kings" album.? You can really hear the influence of keyboards on this album and the departure from the "AtWaS" tour that is now over a year long.? The progression in the year since the tour started and this English mini tour is remarkable.? All the songs sound fuller and more a musical art form.? Highly recommended concert for the historic value.? The instruments are clear, though there is a lack of high end associated with often traded recordings.? Much remastering time was spent giving the recording improved dynamics and sound quality.??? As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, it's only available via free trade and never for sale. Just visit the trading links section to find people that will gladly trade this recording for free.    (2004-08-09)

This is an average audience recording but it has a lot of historical significance. It is the first show ever by the band in Europe. It also features the working version of Xanadu which has slight alterations to what will eventually make it to vinyl. Also featured is a section of The Necromancer. As far as the sound, all the instruments can be heard but the mix is rather muddy. Slight bass boom and a little distortion also are present. The crowd noise does not distract from the show at all. The recording from the following night in Manchester is definitely superior but this one is certainly listenable.   (2004-08-09)
